Thank you for turning in here! This day last week, it was my birthday and GOD helped me to birth this blog in 24hours. I can’t but appreciate Him for His goodness to me. Please see why again at https://www.wordparfait.com/an-invitation-to-abundant-life/ for that post. I just can’t get over it!
Today, for this second post, the healthy recipe for the glorious life you and I need that was laid in my heart is EXERCISE!
Exercise is necessary for the body, soul and spirit of man to function optimally. Physical exercise is simply training the body with activity that maintains or enhances physical fitness and overall health and wellness. It can be directed at a particular part of the body. It requires consistency and discipline for it to be effective. It’s not all fun and games as commitment and grit as well as ability to ignore and keep going despite pain is needed.
Our focus today is to bring to the fore the need for exercise, not just physical but also spiritual and mental exercise. A very good balance in all these regard is needed. We are told in 3 John 2 “Beloved I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” This means that GOD is interested and passionate about our overall well being hence exercise (be it spiritual, mental or physical) is needed to keep us fit to live and enjoy an overall healthy life.
In 1 Timothy 4:7-8, Paul enjoined his son Timothy thus:
“But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.”
Did you hear that? Godliness is profitable for all things! So I say to you dear friend, #BeAGodChaser! #BeAGodLover! #PracticeWhatTheWordOfGodSays! By all means, have your physical exercise sessions but don’t forget to engage in your spiritual and mental exercises too.
Challenge yourself mentally! Learn wide! Challenge yourself to learn new things! Go acquire skills! #JustKeepStrivingToGetBetterInAllAreasAsAChildOfGod!
I pray that after reading this post, you would be fired up, ready and rearing to go exercise-spiritually,mentally and physically!
Go live that life that brings glory and honour to Father GOD! I love and honour you! 💞😍
